In celebration of the legendary imprint founded by Marvel's CCO Joe Quesada, a new crop of talent stands poised to tell a groundbreaking story across the Marvel Universe!
In the cemetery, the blind man does not know who he is, or why he has come to this particular grave at this moment.
He doesn't know the burly police officer with the wild story who has approached him.
Or the strangely intense man who sits in the rear seat of the patrol car, his eyes flashing green.
But all of that is about to change.
Because Matt Murdock is beginning to remember...
In a colorless world without heroes, the spark of light...must come fr more

    The Super Powered Fancast - Deron Generally Nov 7, 2018

    Cates leaves just enough mystery in the story to keep the reader interested and even after finding out who the villain behind the events is, the how and the why are still compelling enough questions to keep the reader invested. Read Full Review

    If the rest of Marvel Knights 20th and the new Marvel Knights series to come can maintain this momentum, then it has every bit as much potential as its inspiration. Read Full Review

    Armed with a killer hook and plenty fan-favorite characters, Marvel Knights 20th #1 is a welcome return of the line to shelves. Backed by a stocked roster of talent, both on the script and art sides, this opening issue takes everything we liked about the Marvel Knights imprint, throws it all in a blender, and mixes it all up in the most entertaining way possible.

    Word Of The Nerd - Brent Jackson Nov 8, 2018

    Overall Marvel Knights 20th Anniversary #1 was a good start to this six-part story bringing back the Marvel Knights imprint. It did not live up to the great expectations I had for it, but it was still good. Read Full Review

    Comics: The Gathering - Harlan Ivester Nov 7, 2018

    I enjoyed Marvel Knights 20th #1, but not so much that I’m dying to get my hands on the next issue. I’m not quite so intrigued just yet, although mystery thrillers like this usually become more fun for me when the answers pour out. The visuals are solid at worst, with the coloring and focus adding the most personality to the spectacle. Check it out if you don’t mind amnesia stories. Read Full Review

    Graphic Policy - Brett Nov 7, 2018

    The first issue is intriguing, it's definitely not what was expected. It's a literal puzzle that feels more like an event than "Marvel Knights." That's not bad and this is one to judge after a few more issues but this debut is a headscratcher. Read Full Review

    Comics Bulletin - Daniel Gehen Nov 8, 2018

    Overall, Marvel Knights 20th #1 is a solid debut issue. Though it does not reach the highs of past books from the imprint, it has a strong hook and great artwork, which is likely enough to make readers want to pick up the second issue. However, the story needs to start providing answers soon lest it wants to end up like so many miniseries in recent years: forgotten. Read Full Review

    The Beat - Joe Grunenwald Nov 7, 2018

    Remember how Marvel used to bill stories as "offbeat"? This comic needs that stamp on the cover. It's strange and disorienting, which are good things, but it's also confusing, and not in a good way. Read Full Review
